Brackley and Braintree meet for a third time in three months following Saturday's goal-less FA Trophy draw.

Brackley are back in cup action on Saturday. Following the 4-0 win against Salford City in the last round, Saints travel to National League South Braintree Town in the first round of the FA Trophy.  The Cressing Road side beat Cray Wanderers in a home tie to progress to the first round.

We travel to FC United of Manchester on Saturday for a crucial National League North fixture that marks the mid-way point of the season. Saints leap-frogged above Harrogate on Saturday following the 3-2 win over a strong Stockport County side to occupy second place before Town returned to second with a home point on Tuesday night against Kidderminster Harriers.

After last Saturday’s FA Trophy defeat of Salford City Brackley return to league action at St James Park where the visitors are Stockport County.

Next up at St James Park is an FA Trophy tie on Saturday against fellow National League North side Salford City.

We travel to Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday in National League North. The game has a 1.30pm kick-off time as the Horsfall Stadium’s floodlights were damaged in high winds some weeks ago.

Southport are the visitors to St James Park on Tuesday evening (kick-off: 7.45pm) for a re-arranged National League North fixture. Following Southport’s relegation last season from the National League this will be the first ever meeting of the two clubs.
